Treating chronic pain is found to help the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex thicken after treatment. Research like this suggests that treating chronic pain can restore normal brain function.

Using MRI to look at the brain function in such patients, researchers documented that spinal manipulation alters pain, expected pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other related brain responses.
